27-29 April 2018
Celebrating its 10thanniversary at the picturesque Boschendal Wine Estate, the AfricanX Trailrun presented by ASICS will treat trail runners to an exhilarating trail running experience. Covering a distance of 33 – 36km, more than half this distance will be run on Cape Nature single track, high up in the mountain. Apart from some jeep track, the Stage One route will be very hilly and technical. The skyline route in Jonkershoek will definitely be one of the stage highlights. Stage Two will start and finish at the beautiful Boschendal Wine Estate. Teams will cover a distance of 33–35km. The entire stage will be run in the Banhoek Valley. Some amazing new trails have been built at high altitude. One of the stage highlights will be coming down Bartinney’s Skyfall. Runners can look forward to experiencing some new spectacular single track in the Banhoek Conservancy. Stage Three will also start and finish at Boschendal Wine Estate. The 20–22km route will run on the slopes of Simonsberg.
